Whether you’re drinking it for a weight loss cleanse, to flush your system of toxins, or just because you like the taste, detox teas are a great way to drink more water and add antioxidants to your diet. Start slow, some tea detox products include natural laxatives, so it’s best you know how your body will react on one tea bag a day before increasing.
I absolutely hate the taste of tea. I've never ever liked it...until I tried this! I'm a die hard coffee drinker, and I've replaced my daily coffee with this tea, and I really like it. It has a pleasant aroma of grapefruit, and you can taste the grapefruit with the first sip. I'm not sure if it actually works as a detox, but either way, it tastes amazing!
"Specific detox teas offer added benefits in the additional ingredients," says Villacorta. Herbs like lemongrass, ginger, dandelion, and milk thistle all contain properties said to support a healthy liver, one of those organs in charge of your natural detoxifying process. Ginger has also been proven to alleviate oxidative stress within the liver, which indirectly helps the organ perform its cleaning task more efficiently, he says.
